 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi everybody!

I have an android tablet (acer a500) which has usb host. What I want to do is to use the scripting environment on android (ASE / S4LA) to communicate with the arduino via the usb male?

Is it possible? How?

Thank you,
Soranne

The Arduino emulates the USB connection as a serial port. If the scripting language on the android can open, read from, and write to a serial port, then you can use it.

Take a look at ArduinoCommander - https://market.android.com/details?id=name.antonsmirnov.android.arduinocommander. For now it requires bluetooth shield but usb-otg willbe supported soon. Can you test usb-otg mode with your tablet?
